Labour Law Principles and Practice in Cameroon

Author: Michael Akomaye Yanou
Publisher: African Books Collective
ISBN: 9789956726424
Release Date: 2012
Genre: Law

There is a dearth of well researched books on important disciplines in law written by Cameroonians. This regrettable situation has invariably meant a reliance of substantive and practice books written mostly by Nigerian and English writers. While books written by these writers have been helpful, they have not always captured the peculiarities and judicial attitudes of the Cameroonian context. When approached from the perspective of practice in the Anglophone regions, not even Cameroonian writers of French orientation have done justice to this situation. This book contributes to filling this gap. It is a comprehensive review that combines an analysis of the principles and basic procedure of labour law in Cameroon. Yanou draws on solid academic research as well as a wide ranging experience in legal practice across Cameroon and Nigeria to present a coherent and practical elaboration of themes such as employment, dismissal, remedies for wrongful dismissal, compensation for industrial injuries, and trade unions. The book is also motivated by the desire for a repository for members of the Bar and Bench, judges, academics, students and human resources practitioners.

Hong Kong Legal Principles

Author: Stephen D. Mau
Publisher: Hong Kong University Press
ISBN: 9789888139743
Release Date: 2013-02-01
Genre: Law

While there are publications on specific legal fields, no recent book includes several core legal subjects presented in a general manner. Resulting from this need for an updated work on the general principles of law in Hong Kong for use by non-law students and nonlegal professionals, the first edition of this book was published in 2006. After three printings, the latest in 2010, a new edition became necessary to reflect accurately the changes in the law since the first publication. Intended as a practical general guide to the more common legal principles as they relate to Hong Kong -- contract, tort, employment, and property -- the second edition should assist the reader in understanding and anticipating legal issues that might arise in commercial or daily personal situations. Therefore the second edition of this book has been updated to reflect recent court decisions and revisions to Hong Kong ordinances and has been reorganized to render the book more user friendly.
